Real Men Don’t Eat Quiche, But Rep. John Boehner Weeps Through Masculine Stereotypes

For all the effort being expelled speculating over whether Oprah faked her tears when Barabra Walters asked about her non-lesbian relationship with Gayle King, I would like a Wikileaks investigation into whether incoming House speaker John Boehner manufactured these tears on 60 Minutes last night.

We’re about to see a sea change, then, at the top of House leadership. While outgoing speaker Nancy Pelosi treated the business of lawmaking as an impersonal matter that required little emotion, let alone the raising of voices, Boehner is going to require tissues galore.
